About Emma Higgins

Basically, for me , it’s all about the colour.
From an early age colour peaked my attention, the brighter the better. I noticed how much happier I was to be painting in colours with paint and pastels as opposed to in pencil.


I get all my inspiration from the colour I see all around me, It can be in nature or in man-made objects. Either way, if its colourful , it just grabs my attention, I see colour before I see anything else. I am immediately drawn to it and it fills me with joy. I see a colour combination I love and It makes want to recreate it .

My vision is to create abstract art, drawing inspiration from my life experience that inspires joy in the viewer and brings life to contemporary interior or family spaces. I have developed a keen interest in how colour can play an important role in our daily lives. My mission is to spread the joy of colour where I can.

Live Life In Colour !

Had a visit from two amazing classes from St Colmcilles in Knocklyon. @stcolmcillesjns We talked about what inspires us and how to be inspired and to make art from your surroundings . I love all their interpretations. @stcolmcillesjns I’m here until next Thursday, if any other classes would like to come down and have a tour. #scattered2023 #inspiringyoungminds

Well that took longer than expected 😅 been tangled up in this painting all week – it’s had many different faces at this point , but got there in the end – today I’m off to the Copperhouse to get some more paintings scanned ! – I think I’ve pretty much decided to stop painting now and get everything else done for the show ! Then if I have time I may finish off some last minute ones 🙈😂Super busy week ahead , framing cataloging mounting etc ….. can’t wait though …. ❤️ #newshow #scattered2023
